Having previously played around in Fontstruct with <a href="http://fontstruct.fontshop.com/fontstructions/show/eclat_weave">Anni Albers' textile patterns</a>, I thought it time to turn my attention to her husband Josef's work. Josef Albers' constructivist typographic experiments are a perfect match for Fontstruct. Other Fontstructors have done great work with Alber's ideas. Most notably, Saberrider's <a href="http://fontstruct.fontshop.com/fontstructions/show/fontstract">fontsract</a> and Stewf's <a href="http://fontstruct.fontshop.com/gallery/2/all/highest_rated/0/leaflet">Leaflet family</a>.
Using Josef Albers' <a href="http://www.fontshop.com/fonts/downloads/p22/p22_albers_set/">Kombinationsschrift alphabet</a> (1928-1931) as my foundation, I've been having a lot of fun remixing and experimenting with his letters. 'Sessions' is the first to get shared. Hopefully, more to come. Read Less
Afrojet Type Foundry presents Sessions, a heavyweight modular typeface with a quirky personality.
The design is a fresh reimagination of Joseph Albers' classic Kombinationsschrift alphabet. It utilizes modular, repeating stylized forms to bring dimensionality and personality to the page.
Sessions takes advantage of OpenType’s Stylistic Alternates feature with: two numeral options (Cap-height and x-height), the option to ‘turn off’ the splayed bottoms of certain glyphs, and numerous alternate characters. All together, these options allow you the designer to create unique and custom designs.
